FIT Authors Talks: Ron Amato Presents ‘The Box’

September 11 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Flyer for Ron Amato author talkProfessor Ron Amato will give an author talk and presentation of his book of photography The Box.

Focused on themes of isolation, desire, conflict and empowerment, Ron Amato’s photographic series and book, The Box, speaks to human experiences of self-discovery and community building. Using a series of boxes to create visual metaphors, Amato echoes his development from adolescence to adulthood through over 100 color, and black-and-white photographs. Evoking first his youth in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1960s and 1970s, moving through his coming out as a gay man, and to his present position as a respected professional photographer and teacher, Amato creates a vivid portrait of struggle and triumph.
